The forest of cranes swinging around Charlotte’s skyline is about to get three new additions, as construction projects press ahead.

The new cranes going up soon include:

▪ A second tower crane at Crescent Stonewall Station, the mixed-use project under construction adjacent to the Stonewall Street light rail station uptown. Crescent Communities is developing 450 apartments, a Whole Foods and two hotels on the site. The base of the crane has been poured.

▪ The 10th Street apartments and parking deck. Levine Properties is developing 264 apartments and a parking deck with more than 1,300 spaces at 10th and Brevard streets. Crane installation is scheduled to begin this week.

▪ The base of a new tower crane has been poured at Kenilworth Avenue and Morehead Street, where Forestar Group is developing a 379-unit apartment building. Forestar said earlier last week that it has sold the project to an undisclosed buyer, and the sale should close later this month.
